Beyond Bunkai DVD now Available!

The new Beyond Bunkai DVD is now on sale! The DVD is for the more experienced bunkai practitioner who is ready to drill the applications of Naihanchi / Tekki Shodan in a flowing, unscripted and realistic way.

The drill makes use of applications for the entirety of Naihanchi / Tekki Shodan and progresses on nicely from the information presented in Bunkai-Jutsu 2 and The Masters Seminar: Seminars Vol. 3. If you are someone who has a solid grasp of bunkai training, I feel sure you’ll really enjoy this one.

The DVD presents the drill in a series of elements so that the drill can be advanced by adding in the additional elements as progress is made. If you read the “blurb” below you can find out more about the nature of the drill and the DVD.

We filmed this DVD earlier in the year and we are delighted to be able to bring it to you before Christmas! This is entirely due to the great job done by Harbour View Productions and Outpost Editing who pulled out all the stops to bring this DVD to you. The replicators have also done a great job and the DVD covers and disk images have came out great. Needless to say, I’m really happy to be able to get this one out to you all!

While many martial artists use the “my mate has a video camera” approach to DVD production, we always use professional people when filming and editing our DVDs. The results are always well worth it because a DVD made on the cheap looks cheap. Whereas a DVD that has cost thousands of pounds to produce looks like it has cost thousands of pounds to produce! As I say, I’m delighted with this one, both in terms of content and style, and I would rank it as my personal favorite.

As I say, I’m excited that the DVD is now available and I look forward to hearing what you all think about it!

All the best,


 Beyond Bunkai

This DVD presents a unique non-scripted flow drill that includes all the motions found within Naihanchi / Tekki Shodan. Ideal for the more experienced bunkai practitioner, and essentially infinite in its variations, this drill shows the depth of Naihanchi / Tekki Shodan and includes gripping skills, head-butting, biting, gouging, seizing, locking, controlling limbs, chokes, cranks, takedowns and close-range kicking.

This drill is also unlike most flow drills in that it is not carefully scripted nor does it involve giving up a position of advantage so your partner can have their turn. The drill instead enables the practitioner to dominate at close-range, flow past any obstructions the enemy may present, safely escape, and practise applying the bunkai of the kata in a realistic context. This DVD also includes a breakdown of the kata itself and a discussion on the history of Naihanchi / Tekki Shodan.

Iain Abernethy is one of the world’s leading exponents of kata application and practical karate. He has been invited all over the globe to teach his approach and to help people return to the original combative nature of the traditional martial arts.
